The CDIATM Dexamethasone Immunofluorescence Test Strip (Milk) is a lateral flow immunoassay for the detection of dexamethasone in milk.
The Test is a competitive binding immunoassay in which dexamethasone in a sample compete with immobilized dexamethasone conjugate for limited labeled antibody binding sites. When a sufficient amount of specimen is applied to the sample pad of the test device, the specimen migrates through the test device by capillary action. The dexamethasone in the sample combines with the antibody labeled with the fluorescent microspheres, and inhibits the binding of the antibody and dexamethasone on the NC membrane test line (T line) , thus resulting in changes in the fluorescence intensity of the T and C line. Read the result by using the fluorescence reader.
Dexamethasone is a type of corticosteroid medication. It is used in the treatment of many conditions, including rheumatic problems, a number of skin diseases, severe allergies, asthma, chronic obstructive lung disease, croup, brain swelling, and along with antibiotics in tuberculosis. The long-term use of dexamethasone may result in thrush, bone loss, cataracts, easy bruising, or muscle weakness.
